Just going to test the water as i am in process of selling house and downsizing,and what with having to do work on house,needing to clear car parts from every bit of spare room to make home look saleable i just cannot see me getting any time to work on the car in the foreseeable and i don't want to move and store a resto project.
The car is a 1972 lotus elan plus 2 130s originaly lagoon blue/silver with V5 and loads of previous paperwork and MOT's and the whole car has been dismantled and is ready to be put back together with 90% of parts to finish.The paint has been removed back to gel coat (95% done) and fiberglass is in very good condition.The car was originally fitted with a sunroof so a new one could be fitted or i have a repair panel from boss motors.
The chassis is a spyder replacement and was in excellent condition but i still took it back to bare metal and gave it 3 coats of epoxy paint.
I was planning on doing a zetec replacement using a 2000E gearbox and lotus running gear but it could be built up to original spec.if a " twink" was found.

Shame you're selling after so much preparatory work has already been done but understandable. Someone is going to get a bargain! Good luck with it!

Not now, Paul's back on with it. He will likely confirm when he sees this.
